whoneedsfeminism:

[Bumper sticker reads: Women shouldn’t drive anything.]
Feminism is still needed because my friend posted a picture on her Facebook wall of this car that was driving in front her.  People who responded to this picture did not view it as sexist, but instead they cracked jokes about it or told my friend I to just ignore it because we’re overreacting.

This. This is why feminism is such a battle to explain. For some reason in our culture if it is a joke of some sort, than it’s not sexist, or racists, or ignorant. It’s funny! I find the dismissing of these everyday, no big deal perpetrators of sexism the most frustrating. Whenever the comment is brought up that jokes can be sexist or racists, I’m overreacting, and that I don’t get it. But it just serves to diminish our position and our strengths and prevents us from having a serious conversation about the underlying issues of such jokes. Because I don’t get it I can’t have an opinion.
